PART FIVE AND PART SIX
This book got stale for me again. So much socialism and politics that I started to drift off. It has been an emotional rollercoaster of a read for me, and I am so glad the ride is almost over. I feel like this book has been read forcefully instead of with my usually easy gait. How I dread book that make me feel that way. But I digress, it is too close to the finish line for me to give up.
I still like Levin the most, even though he has changed since marriage. I think he is still a top character, though I don't like how he seems to ignore his wife. Maybe it's just me, but I find myself asking why did they get married in the first place... he's supposed to be infatuated with her and now he got her it's lost it's luster.
I dislike Anna more and more all the time. She still pines for a life she could have always had, if she kept her legs closed. She is one lost soul, and she brought it on herself. I hate that she blames Vronsky, like he did this all himself. It takes two to tango lady! I also hate her morals as a mother. How can she be so distraught over one and not give love to the other? That made me sick to read her feelings, as a parent it killed to know she could feel that way to her daughter. She was repulsed by her and that repulsed me.
I do appreciate Vronsky is not the slimeball I initially thought him to be. He has good and virtuous intentions. It's Anna that can't get it together. He wants the divorce and she is ignorant as to why. I can't believe she wouldn't want the same after Stepan took her son away. Again it boils back to Anna being an idiot, and enforces why I dislike her so.
That's all I got to say this week. See ya on the next one!
